Osório wind farm

The Osório wind farm (Parque Eólico de Osório in Portuguese) is a wind farm in Brazil, located near the city of Osório, Rio Grande do Sul.

The farm covers 13,000 hectares (32,000 acres) divided into three lots (Osório proper, Índios and Sangradouro) separated by nature conservation strips 1-kilometre (0.62 mi) wide. It consists of 75 wind turbines of 2 MW, giving 150 MW of installed capacity and about 51 MW of effective capacity (enough for a city of 240,000 inhabitants). The capacity factor is 34%, slightly above the word's average (30%). At the time of its completion (2007), it was the largest wind farm in Latin America and the second-largest in the world.
